I'm not Bryce and I'm 41 years old, but that's still the coolest birthday cake I've ever gotten! Thanks also for respecting my lack of social accumen by not throwing one of those blowout birthday parties like you used to have with pyrotechnics, dancing girls, and 20-kilo drums of asperin. I'd rather just get together with a few close friends.

You're the best, mule friend. You made a great birhtday even better!

Hi Dave!

Well you know the times and pocketbook are slim right now - those lavish parties can take a sizeable dent out of one's savings. And truth be told, most of those party goers of yore have moved on from red dirt girl to greener (and more post-worthy) pastures. But we still have a close little group here, all wishing you the very best that life has to offer. You deserve it.

Happy Birthday again, dear friend.

Is upside down a good omen?

red dirt girl said...

Well Cosmo,
Apparently upside down is my 'normal' view of the world and life. Besides, from what I understand, in skateboarding the WHEELS are what determines the difference between a good board and a great one.

To answer your question directly, yes. Upside down is good.

Is that a casket for an 88 year old sk8brdr?

Soubriquet!

How dare you denigrate my culinary skills, on the behalf of our dear friend Dave ???!!!

I worked a 7-hour shift then rushed home to bake him this most awesome of awesomeness skateboard cake. I meant to add another 8 to the cake (5 eights equaling 40) plus a 1, but I ran out of space and time.

"Bryce" is Esparantan for "Dave" (a very confusing language, I know) - but I was attempting to highlight the amazing intelligence and wit of Dave.

To suggest my efforts need to be buried in a graveyard is ....... just rude! Go on - let's see what YOU did for Dave's birthday ...

I danced.
Meaningfully and movingly, in an allegory of a man freed from mowing by the god of the swift river, gradually, he rises, from his paddle-wielding crouch, with small tentative steps he starts, wobbles, kicks, balances, arms outstretched, falls, rises...

Until at last, he glides. leaps, ollies.

There was no applause.
Just a few quiet mutterings of 'Yeah', or 'wha?'... As I left the room, I careened off all four walls, my imaginary wheels smashed the chandelier.
Then I was taken to the e.r., my work done.

Happy belated birthday, Dave!

Soubry ~ What can I throw at a skateboarding dancer? If you had a pic to go with it, that would have been even cooler! Here's hoping Dave will get the message, belated though it is.

I got it, Souby! I'm still working on that ollie but that's the most poetic thing I've ever read, the arms outstretched bit. The cool thing about learning to skateboard at age 41 is that the neighbors all smile just watching me uneventfully navigate the parking lot. It's not something they see every day. The best applause I get, though, comes from my son who laughs himself to injury every time the board shoots towards the curb and my ass shoots downward, which happens about every five minutes.

Don't know what else to say here. You kids make me happy every day!
